The automotive industry is undergoing a massive digital transformation as the concept of CASE (connected, autonomous, shared, electrical) is gaining traction. And as the number of connected vehicles increases, data logging, remote diagnostics, and over-the-air (OTA) software updates become more important.
With the Deep Connected Platform from Sibros, a Silicon Valley-based company, vehicle manufacturers and fleet owners can perform OTA software updates without many hassles. The Deep Updater can be configured for over 80 components and controllers in the vehicle. Similarly, the Deep Logger can collect event-driven data and transmit diagnostics so a service engineer can remotely track down a technical issue.
In the latest episode of The Counterpoint Podcast, host Matthew Orf is joined by Sibros CEO and co-founder Hemant Sikaria and research analyst Fahad Siddiqui to talk about OTA software updates for connected cars and more. The podcast explores how Sibros is helping OEMs and fleet owners with software and data solutions, and how OTA updates can avoid massive recalls, and much more.
